-Leadville, Morrison, Vail Valley, Summit County-
Howdy friends~ Hope all is well for you this lovely August. I just rode my motorcycle from Breckenridge to Leadville, CO this morning to do the final mixdown for the upcoming single. Seeing the mountains from that perspective was a pretty humbling sight. Here’s a recap of the past weekends adventures.
Thursday I headed out from our Leadville recording session to the Morrison Holiday Bar in Morrison, CO. The show went awesome! I played solo & had a grand time with the patrons and locals at MHB. I rocked out pretty hard the & didn’t feel like driving, so I slept in my van snug against Red Rocks.
The morning comes.. the van won’t start. Battery or Alternator? I learned how to test if it’s the battery or alternator, & headed to Sam’s in Denver for a rotation/balance & new battery.
The van, Ella, was running great again so I headed to Vail Valley for a show at the Main Street Grill w/ upright bassist, Kalin Capra. The gig was pretty good. I always try and bring 110% to the shows, but I had a terrible migraine & it effected my energy level. Still a good show, but I was so relieved to wake up the next day without the parade marching on my temples. I slipped on my running shoes & went for a run around the neighborhood & a workout in the park. It was beautiful & a good recharge.
After a smoothie at Loaded Joe’s, we headed to Summit County for our show in Breckenridge at Motherloaded Tavern. This was a WILD NIGHT! Everyone was dancing & cheering us on. We jammed from one song to the next and kept the groove going all night with no break. What a riot! Tai did a live painting of us that I’ll post soon as it’s dry.
Sunday was a blast in Frisco! Art Fest, friend’s bday, coffee, wine, mussels, motorcycle, music, rain, sun, movie.. it was a good day off.
Today, Monday, Tim Stroh & I finish the new single, Somewhere Behind The Sun. Stay tuned for the new release & upcoming music video! Do good things take time?
